Nanoparticles for Fuel Cells Shangfeng Du, 22 Jan 2010
Jobs and Research 3 EU Marie-Curie Research Fellows: SOLARPEM (Dr P Chaurasia) NAFCELL (Dr S DU) ADHCEM (Dr H Rossetto) FCs, solar energy and particle aggregation for reducing CO 2 emission.
PEMFC electrodes In-situ grown Pt nanowires (J Power Sources 195 (2010) 289) A facile one-step process: No template No organic solvents Room temperature
Nanoparticle aggregation Adhesion force estimation (Nanotechnology 20 (2009) ) NanoSight Analyzing individually Doublet to singlet ratio
Following work Pt-nanowire electrodes in PEMFCs: Optimization and scale-up; Complex electrodes Ni-YSZ anode in micro-tubular SOFCs: Modification with Y-doped SDC Understanding the adhesion force acting Collaborative proposal with China, India Joint proposal with Coventry University
